Champagne Louis Roederer
Founded in 1776, and controlled by the same family since 1819, Louis Roederer is one of the last major Champagne Houses to be an independent family affair. The original Louis Roederer was a visionary in the Champagne world. In the mid-19th Century, he purchased his own grand cru vineyards, at a time when his contemporaries were buying in the majority of their grapes. Over time, he patiently experimented in order to learn which parcels of his land were best suited to particular grape varieties. The result was the creation of iconic Champagnes that even now, generations later, we are still able to enjoy.
Collection 242 Champagne NV
Fine bubbles and a nose of fresh fruit and hawthorn. The inclusion of reserve wines gives it the complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes. Smooth, complex palate mingling flavours of apple and pear with blackberries, raspberries and cherries. This is a structured and elegantly mature wine, lively on the mouth with a smooth palate.
